Hi @AbdulalAbdulrazek-9820,

Unfortunately there's nothing we can do here on these forums to help you with your processor, you can view the supported Intel processors for Windows 11 over here:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/design/minimum/supported/windows-11-supported-intel-processors

You can always send feedback by using the Feedback Hub app and file a report and request your processor to be supported.

Send feedback to Microsoft with the Feedback Hub app
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/send-feedback-to-microsoft-with-the-feedback-hub-app-f59187f8-8739-22d6-ba93-f66612949332

Another option is to upgrade your processor to a supported one.


If the reply was helpful please don't forget to upvote and/or accept as answer, thank you!


Best regards,
Leon

The user doesn't ask for help he is asking why the Core I7 7700HQ is not supported for Windows 11 viewing the list of supported Intel processors is not a valid answer.

And they are considered experts. what is happening with Microsoft these days?

We don’t have the information why, all I know is Microsoft started supporting some of the Intel’s 7th Generation CPU because they are found in their Surfaces, also because they follow the DCH design principles:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/develop/dch-principles-best-practices#dch-design-principles

Microsoft also updated some of their statements in their following blog post:

I don't see the question to be confusing at all. If you do not know the answer, you could have just said we don't know why. That's it. The reply above is clearly not understanding the question. Might as well remove/edit that and put i don't know so as to other future users who wants to ask those question and read this, won't be laughing.

There was no mention about the question being confusing, most of the answerers are volunteer moderators who do not work for Microsoft so we don't have any inside information.

You can always contact Microsoft directly and ask them directly about the Windows 11 processor support:
https://support.microsoft.com/contactus

Again, understanding what was posted is key here. If you don't know the answer, just tell it. Not posting something unrelated to it. It makes it more harder for people to look for answers. And given you mentioned you are volunteers, why bother giving answers not helping anyone. If you don't know, it won't hurt to say I don't know. And people will look for other options.

Microsoft has improved the performance and security in Windows 11.

This performance improvement is based on supported hardware, BIOS, and drive configurations.


For security there is now a Zero trust model.

This involves chips, boot processes, log in, and apps.


There is now a prioritization of apps and processes.

Memory management now favors apps running in the foreground with more CPU and other resources.



While monitoring task manger end users can use third party software to create a 90% stress level on the CPU.

In Windows 10, 8, and 7 the end users experience typically is extremely sluggish.

This is lag.

The Windows 11 experience with a 90% CPU is designed to allow end users to open new apps without lag.

The new apps are in the foreground and Windows 11 now applies CPU and resources to the foreground.

Browser tabs are now in sleep mode.

This saves resources and is designed to improve battery life.

The new methodology reduces CPU and memory consumption by approximately 30%.


Windows 11 is more about "resume from sleep".


According to Microsoft using hardware / BIOS / drive within the supported requirements has markedly improved reliability.
Windows 11 is now using DCH drivers:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/develop/dch-principles-best-practices


With new chips and drivers there is now a 99% crash free experience in Windows 11 previews.


Windows home and pro will now have major upgrades (featured udates) only once per year.


The update engine in Windows 11 has improved for cumulative updates.

There is now a comparison of what is already on the computer.

Then there is a pull down of only necessary update pieces.

This has reduced update sizes by 40%

The Microsoft Q&A email notifications have not been working in my account.
This was reported in the feedback section.
So far the failure has not been fixed.
So I may not see any future posts in this thread.

If you want me to see the contents of this thread you can update the thread in the feedback section as I will be regularly looking there for a fix.

According to Microsoft:

Devices that do not meet the minimum system requirements had 52% more kernel mode crashes. Devices that do meet the minimum system requirements had a 99.8% crash free experience.

Its upto Microsoft to include or exclude a processor.

Read more here: https://blogs.windows.com/windows-insider/2021/08/27/update-on-windows-11-minimum-system-requirements-and-the-pc-health-check-app

If you like to get this processor included, you can drop a feedback using Feedback hub app.

I think you should upgrade your graphic card, maybe that's why someone has it, then you can go to the Wikipedia page and see if there are any solutions.
